Purpose

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Health Policy Fellows program provides a fellowship opportunity for midcareer health professionals and behavioral and social scientists with an interest in health and healthcare policy.

Fellows will participate in the policy process at the federal level and will use that leadership experience to improve health, healthcare, and health policy. The experience is designed to prepare individuals with the skills needed to influence the future of public health and healthcare policy, as well as provide a way to advance their own career development.

The fellowship requires, at a minimum, a 12-month residential experience in Washington, D.C., with additional support for health policy leadership development activities.
